KREG News

Kebede Research and Education Group

KREG stands for Kebede Space Science and Condensed Matter Physics Research and Education Groups. We specialize in curriculum design and practical research in space and material science. Based in the Physics Department, the space science program is very well equipped with state of the art facilities for astrophysical and space physics research. The material science program deals with cutting edge research in synthesis and characterization of materials that exhibit phenomenon such as superconductivity and magnetism. We are seeking qualified students and postdoctoral fellows to join these rewarding and challenging programs at NC A&T State University. For further information please contact us at the following addresses

Dr. Alex Lacerda visits NC A&T

The Physics of Materials group of the Department of Physics Department will host a visit by Dr. Alex Lacerda, the Director of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory of Los Alamos, New Mexico on June 4, 2007. Dr. Lacerda will give a talk on current research projects involving high magnetic fields. The venue for his talk will be arranged later. Dr. Lacerda has also expressed interest to meet students, professors and administrators. He would also like to tour material research facilities. Please fill out the following form, and indicate the time you wish to meet Dr. Lacerda

Please sign up to talk to Dr Alex Laceda, Director

Talisha Haywood Master Thesis DEFENSE (Major Advisors: Abebe Kebede and Dhrananjay Kumar) . The work is supported by NSF-NIRT and NASA-MUCERPI2003STRUCTURAL AND FLUX-PINNING EFFECTS OF SELF-ASSEMBLED CeO2 NANODOTS ON YBa2Cu3O7-d THIN FILMS-For electrical power applications, high temperature superconductors such as YBa2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) need to possess a high critical current density (Jc); therefore it's critical to improve their current carrying capacity in high magnetic fields. Enhancement of Jc occurs by increasing the flux-pinning capability of the superconductor. The most promising approach to flux-pinning involves the introduction of homogeneous defects (such as nanodots) for pinning of moving vortices that cause current dissipation in high magnetic fields. In this work the study of the effect of CeO2 nanodots in the YBCO matrix is presented. This work is supported by NASA Capacity Building Partnership for Research and Education in Space Science, and The NSF NIRT program

Recent Acquisitions The ITS30S is a new, 3-frequency version of the ITS10S and ITS20S receivers originally developed in 1994 by NorthWest Research Associates. This model was developed in anticipation of the three-frequency CERTO class beacons, the first of which is scheduled to be launched in May of 2005. Frequency coverage is approximately from -220 to +110 ppm, allowing coverage of the NIMS (OSCAR) satellites on both Operational and Maintenance frequencies, and the Geodetic and CERTO beacons operating at +80 ppm. This range also covers two of the Russian NavSat frequencies, 0 and -200 ppm The receiver is operated through an associated Windows-based PC, and is intended to operate remotely and unattended. The ITS30S is made to order, and so significant cost savings can be realized if multiple units are ordered at the same time

IGY-IHY-IPY: Space Science Institute The sencond annual Space Science Institute for Student-Teacher Teams is Scheduled for July 16, 2007. For further information, please contact Dr. Abebe Kebede and Mr. Cesar Lockhary

Space Technology curriculum proposedThe rapid growth of technology in our society has been sustained by the efforts of a technological team of professionals. The technologist is a key member of that team who is responsible for applying the research, analysis and design of his colleagues the scientist and the engineer. Technologists also supervise technicians who are involved in fabricating, operating, testing, troubleshooting and maintaining equipment and systems. Contact Drs. Abebe Kebede and Derreck Dunn to learn more about the space technology curriculum/
